Subject: RE: BS: Independent Quebec
Canada is a truly wonderful place with great people and the fact that it is a single country at all is a great achievement. I think any Province seceding would result in a case of people realizing what a treasure they had once they had lost it.
On the other hand, I don't understand why the Quebecer separation movement should be anywhere as strong as it is, so I'm obviously missing something (seriously).
I know the Francophone roots of Canada go way back, and the friction between Franco and Anglo date from the time of the American (US) Revolution. Perhaps that's part of the reason. Maybe the Francos miss their cousins who were deported from what is now Nova Scotia and are now known as 'Cajuns.
Anyhow, I would like to see Canadians more enthusiastic about their own country in a creative way, not so much that they don't want to be like the US, more as to the Canada they wish to make. But I've always really enjoyed travelling and camping through Canada.
